Each year in our school first and fourth grade students participate in a feast. The first graders are Pilgrims and the fourth grade students are the Native americans. They gather together to share a snack, sing songs and bring a handmade gifts. In art class the fourth grade students made straw weavings to wear to the feast. The weavings took a long time but the kids love them. They also worked on them in their classroom during snack or quiet reading time. If you have never tried straw weaving before it's a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed it. You could do 3 straws and make a bracelet. That would be quick and still give students the chance to learn the weaving technique.
